Samsonite Unpacks Demand Planning With John Galt Solutions’ Atlas Planning Suite
CHICAGO, IL – June 25, 2015 - John Galt Solutions announced today that Samsonite, the world’s top manufacturer of travel luggage, bags and accessories, has selected John Galt’s Atlas Planning Suite as the foundation of its enterprise demand planning process for its North America Operations.
Samsonite sought demand planning software that would allow them to centralize and automate its various spreadsheet-based planning processes. The tool would have to be capable of handling Samsonite’s large and diverse range of products and reporting information from multiple perspectives. Atlas Planning won out, as it offered a powerful and flexible data warehouse at its core. With Atlas, Samsonite’s multiple plans have been consolidated into a single process, enabling enterprise-wide visibility and collaboration.
“John Galt’s software promises to do some great things for our process”, says Bill Morrison, Director of IT at Samsonite. “We’re looking forward to seeing what Atlas can do for us, not just on the demand management side, but with other areas of the business."
“Integrated Business Planning is the key to supply chain success and improved competitiveness”, says Anne Omrod, President & CEO of John Galt Solutions. “Samsonite is just the latest manufacturer to use Atlas Planning for this purpose. We’re sure Atlas will help them gain even more of an edge over the competition.”
